The above video is courtesy of the Pontifical Council on Culture. I truly hope this waste of money and time was a product of good old fashioned nepotism rather than anyone being confused enough to think this vanity-vamping-selfie serves any useful purpose except the obvious one of making the Pontifical Council on Culture appear truly absurd. Vatican Bureaucracy-a sure sign that God clearly protects an institution cursed by such fools.
Update December 28: The English version of the video has been yanked, although the Italian version is still up there. No doubt the Council pulled the English version after all the caustic comments on English speaking blogs. The fact that they left up the Italian version indicates that the powers that be on the council do not understand the criticism. Hattip to Patrick Madrid for preserving this monument to the cluelessness of the Vatican bureaucracy.
